Default Super straight midrange

I'm looking for a super straight midrange with decent HSS that I can fit in between a Verdict and a Big Z Comet. Preferably a relatively low profile disc, I don't like tall profile beaded discs like the Roc3 much at all. I'm currently throwing an Envy for this slot, but I need to put a lot on it to get it out to midrange distances, ideally I'd like a disc with similar HSS to the Envy, but a little more speed, maybe even a little more glide. I'm considering the Truth and the Buzzz without ever having thrown them, I'm open to other suggestions as well of course

It's a bit domey, but I LOVE Discmania's MD. Better than any other mid they make IMHO. But, I just bag a Prodigy M4 and hyzer flip it for those straight shots.

You described the Matrix. Until it's released for regular production, the Marketplace or FB prolly has some, and they should be out in a month or so.

Truth (not Emac) might work, but they don't seem to power down well for me and they dump. Others I think might work; Mako3, Mako (I prefer the Mako to the 3 version), Buzzz and Claymore. of these I actually liked the Claymore best.

I no longer throw any of them however, not because they're bad, I just prefer a bead so I throw Rocs and Comets for consistency of feel.

I forgot the Atlas. The Star Atlas is really a phenomenal disc.

Fresh Champion or Star Mako3. I've come to prefer the Champion Mako3 myself. Flat topped, no bead. Goes dead straight for a (relatively) long way. It can be turned over and will hold anny lines, but it'll go dead straight on a frozen rope at your target.

Side note: someone said the Discmania MD, and I must respectfully disagree. I found the MD to be "meh" at best; it's very unexceptional to me. I'd recommend the MD3 instead, though it will have some fade at the end.

I think a max weight Glo Z Buzzz is what you're describing. Should be easy to find one on ebay. Like Halcon said the MVP Matrix sounds like a good choice too. People on here have been describing it as a longer Envy.
